Mutton Brain Curry or Bheja fryMutton Brain Curry or Bheja Fry is one of the famous Indian side dishes. Because of its flavor and juiciness, it will compel you to have one more plate. It has a unique flavor blended with little spices and curd.

Usually, Bheja Fry Recipe is made with brains of lamb/sheep or goat. We need to take care while it is removed from the skull of the animal, it should not get torn as it loses its flavor. Many of us prefer having it because of its softness and juiciness, also because it hardly takes 5 minutes to prepare.

Some of us like to have this recipe without mashing brain to experience softness of brain while some like to have mashed as it gets cooked overall flavored with curd, mango powder and garam masala spices.
